Install/update downgrade intelpython3_core to 0.0.0.custom-0



Almost all install produce this:

The following packages will be downloaded:

    package                    |            build
    ipywidgets-7.0.0           |     py36_intel_0          94 KB  intel
    widgetsnbextension-3.2.0   |           py36_0         1.7 MB  intel
                                           Total:         1.8 MB

The following NEW packages will be INSTALLED:

    intel-openmp:       2018.0.3-0
    ipywidgets:         7.0.0-py36_intel_0 intel       [intel]
    llvm-meta:          6.0.0-0            conda-forge
    widgetsnbextension: 3.2.0-py36_0       intel

The following packages will be UPDATED:

    mkl:                2018.0.3-intel_1   intel       --> 2018.0.3-1

The following packages will be DOWNGRADED:

    intelpython3_core:  2018.0.3-0         intel       --> 0.0.0.custom-0      intel
    openmp:             2018.0.3-intel_0   intel       --> 6.0.0-vc14_1        conda-forge [vc14 ]
    pip:                9.0.3-py36_0       intel       --> 9.0.1-py36_intel_1  intel       [intel]
    setuptools:         39.0.1-py36_0      intel       --> 27.2.0-py36_intel_0 intel       [intel]


I don't like and don't understand why intelpython3_core is downgraded to an unnumbered version, that OpenMP is overridden by the conda-forge version (conda-forge is last in the channels list), that mkl is override by the anaconda channels, and similar concern with pip and setuptools.

For now, I pinned mkl, intelpython3_core, OpenMP, pip, and setuptools to current version.

Is there a reason for all that and a way to not pin them and keep sane and current version?

Which operating system and version are you using?


Hello Jeremie,

In order to understand why the conda solver is making those choices, I need to see what packages are in your environment and what channels are configured.

Can you add the output of both "conda list" and "conda info"? Thank you.

Also, I apologize that it has taken so long for someone to respond to your initial request.

Best, Todd




I removed and reinstall but I have the same problem.

When I try to install a package from intel, anaconda or conda-forge channels a whole bunch of things get updated/downgraded even if all the dependencies of the package are satisfied. Conda is up to date.
